Finding Away installation completed

I am behind the trash times, people, I hope you’ll forgive the lag in posts and subsequent flood. During the hiatus, an exciting thing happened, trash artist Kuros Zahedi finished his long-awaited installation “Finding Away” using the trash blogger Ari Derfel collected over the course of one year. Here’s a snap, courtesy of the artist. Look out for it at the Green Festival in San Francisco in November.

According to Zahedi: “Everything except the reclaimed doors the mural is on and some non-toxic glue is Ari’s Trash.”

Finding Away

As previously covered here, artist Kuros Zahedi likes to make stuff out of trash that other people save. His piece, Finding Away is crafted from the waste painstakingly chronicled and collected by San Franciscan blogger Ari Derfel over the course of one year.

Seattle-based trashies can check out the work at Bumbershoot, September 5-7 in the Northwest Rooms as part of Kerfuffle (The Uneasy Relationship Between Humanity and the Environment)—an amazing-sounding show of work dealing with waste and related topics that is FREE on the 4th.

And November 13-15, Finding Away will be shown in San Francisco as part of the green festival in that city.
